Small-Scale Beekeepers  

Our beekeepers move their hives around Myanmar from one region to another seasonally, 4–5 times per year. Sagaing region is the main honey production area, producing over 60% of Myanmar honey.


We collect jujube honey and multifloral honey from Sagaing from September to November. Then, our beekeepers move to Shan State for wild sunflower, sesame and multifloral honey. Depending on production, they will also go to Magway, Mon, Bago, and Mandalay region.


We work with over 100 beekeepers, providing training and new technologies to create sustainable growth. We support micro finance, beekeeping management, techniques, and inputs to improve quality and production.


We have expanded our bee field distribution network with more than 20,000 beehives around Myanmar to produce quality honey while complying with good beekeeping practices.


Beekeeping is the main family business for some of our partners. 20-25% of our beekeepers are women working together with the support of their family.


More than 60% are young, active, and energetic. They are willing to develop their business with hard work, learning continuously the current trends of beekeeping practices.


The top beekeepers have nearly 1,000 hives in their business while small scale farms have 100 hives. The average per apiary is 50–100 hives.

Honey Regions of Myanmar

We collect honey from many parts of Myanmar. Jujube is the main type of honey production. Other varieties are wild sunflower, canola, niger, boneset, kapok, pigeon pea, coriander, wildflower, rubber, spiderwort, sunflower, sesame, and multifloral.


For export, industrial, and table grade, we mostly collect from central, northern, and southern regions of Myanmar.


Central region of Myanmar, mainly Sagaing State, is the dry zone covered with a large forest area. We can get mainly jujube honey from Monywa region of Sagaing State at the end of monsoon season, starting from September to November.


The hills of Shan State are very famous in Myanmar. The beautiful scene, the breath-taking view, the fully blooming flowers, and the famous place are the most attractive reasons to many travellers. From above 2,000 feet, we can collect delicious honey from wild sunflowers and various flowers starting from the winter region, November to January.

Honey Harvest

Harvest is from September to June according to the nectar varieties. All the beekeepers migrate from one place to another according to the flowering season of Myanmar.


Our beekeepers place the bee frames in the desired area for honey collection.

  • Beekeepers remove the bee frames and thin wax layer that seals the honey cells with a long, sharp knife heated by steam

  • The bee frame is inserted into a centrifugal extractor in the field. It can hold 8-12 frames at a time. It is manual using air flow extraction as electricity is limited in field areas

  • The honey is collected in a bucket and poured through a filter to remove big impurities, and into a tight drum

  • The collected honey is sent to our local collecting point. We collect several drums then truck them to our HACCP certified factory in Yangon for further processing

  • At the factory, the honey drums go into the raw area collection zone which is strictly clean for sampling for lab analysis

  • We process lot by lot through filtering and vacuum dehumidification in the clean and tight process room, in line with international standard machines and HACCP hygienic guidelines
